Over four years photographer Marc Wilson travelled to 143 locations along the coastlines of the UK, The Channel Islands, Northern & Western France, Denmark, Belgium and Norway to capture the photographs making up his new book The Last Stand.
The Last Stand documents the physical remnants of war in the 20th century in the UK and Northern Europe. By photographing remaining man-made military defence structures situated around their coastal areas, which now sit silently in the landscape, imbued with recent history, Wilson has created a permanent photographic record of the past.
The The Last Stand. was one of the award winners at The Terry O’Neill award in 2013 and was published as a book in late 2014. It has sold out of its 1st edition by early 2015.
